Marcus of Umbria Winner – The Dogs are Really in Charge

Big congrats and thanks for playing along to Laura, Lance, and Vito from The Dogs are Really in Charge. They won our Marcus of Umbria giveaway.  On their blog, they tell all sorts of stories about their mixed family that includes a corgi (that’s Lance), a toller pup (that’s Vito), FIVE ferrets and a cat named Like. Oh, and did we mention that there’s now a service puppy in training in da house? That’d be Chuck (a chocolate lab, who is just too cute).

Whew! I feel like we need to have trading cards to keep track of that crew.

They do all kinds of training at their house, and playing TOO, of course.

It looks like hearty congratulations go out to Laura for another reason. She recently took a full-time job with a service dog organization. Woot! How pawsome would that be?

We’re big fans of doing work that really matters in life. Three cheers for Laura.

You’ll find a link to her blog now housed in our sidebar as well. Welcome aboard.

Thanks for the tip on Laura’s blog. Was happy to see a another fellow Minnesotan dog enthusiast.
